First Look: Photos from R-Rated Puppet Movie 'We R Animals'
I don't even know how to introduce this, but you've got to check it out! There's an upcoming Swedish film in development called We R Animals that is an R-rated English language animated puppet movie inspired by Peter Jackson's Meet The Feebles and creatures in Gremlins/Labyrinth. A batch of crazy photos recently hit on Twitch (via SlashFilm) and it has kind of a Gremlins meets deranged Muppets vibe to it that kicks ass. Most characters in the movie will be played by hand puppets with animatronic faces. The photos come from a test shoot that director Thobias Hoffmen did to get financing for this, with production starting in 2011.
Hoffmen describes the film in a quote found by SlashFilm: "'A live-action version of a cartoon world.' A bit like an adaptation of a graphic novel. It is our world, yet not. As a living painting by CM Coolidge, which is drawing everything to a head." The insanely wacky plot involves the female rabbit Snow White breaking out of a pet store only to end up becoming a prostitute under the control of a shady and devious pimp cat named Flash and his dog friends. It's a comic adventure, filled with drug using cats, horny dogs, cat-ninja assassins, vampire bats, cruelty and magic. So insane, but it looks awesome, and I want to see it. Gotta love originality!
